Lithuanian-born Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte‘s foray into photography started with personal projects, based on her experience of moving from her hometown of Vilnius to Scotland to study at the Glasgow School of Art.

From familiar places, objects and scenarios to family meals, nostalgia is a continuous thread throughout her work. For Peripheral Histories, an upcoming group exhibition spread across two Glasgow venues, the artist has combined photographs made by her father in the last days of the Soviet Union’s grip on Lithuania with her own images of in the West, made using expired film as old as the one used by her father.

Kiliulyte’s latest series will appear alongside recent works by three Glasgow-based artists — Calum Douglas, Alan Knox and Sarah Amy Fishlock.

Peripheral Histories will run from 5 August – 18 September at Platform, and 5 August – 2 October at The Lighthouse.
